Hello,

Looking for the marriage of Thomas Alexander HAINES & Mary KERR.

Also looking for the death reg for Mary. I didn't find it on the Vic. fiche at the library.

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957) - Monday 19 May 1919 p.1
HAINES.-On the 16 /18th ?? May, at Lismore, Victoria, of pneumonic influenza, Mary, dearly beloved wife of Thomas Alexander Hains, and loving mother of Olive, George, Molly, and Mrs. C. R. Mitchell.


Also looking for 2nd marriage for Thomas.

Cairns Post (Qld. : 1909 - 1954) - Saturday 7 September 1946 p.5
DEATH.
The death occurred in Cairns on September 1, of Thomas Alexander Haines, husband of Mrs. E. Haines and father of Mrs. C. R. Mitchell, Victoria, Mrs. J. M. Ledlie, Mrs. W. M. Warner, both of Cairns and Mr. G. K. Haines of Biloela.


Thanks.

Dave

Qld. Marriage 1923/C01065 Haines Thomas Alexander - Jarrold Edith Emily

Qld. Death 1970/B17572 Haines Edith Emily - William - Hannah

I can't see a burial for Edith in any of the Cairns cemeteries. May have been cremated.

I didn't find the marriage before 1899 of Thomas Alexander HAINES & Mary KERR in Victoria on fiche at the library today.


Death 7711/1919 HAINES Mary 48 - KERR Josh - REID Nanny - Lismore (Victoria)

So Mary KERR was born abt 1871.

Thanks gibbo.

Still possible she was not buried in Brisbane. Might have been cremated at Mt Thompson.


I wonder where Mary KERR was born. Perhaps the marriage in Victoria was not registered. I have four now I can't find in that state.

Alternative is that the marriage was not in Victoria or even Australia.

Thanks Geoff.

That birth would fit parents and age at death would have to be out a bit.

I have only two children and birth reg for only one:

Vic. Birth 11013/1899 HAINES Olive - Thos. - KERR Mary - Hawthorn

Qld. Death 1958/B26146 Haines George Kerr - Thomas Alexander - Mary
